Welcome to Discovery Times Square (Discovery TS) where extraordinary exhibits and unforgettable experiences come to life in our exciting, vibrant space for entertainment, learning and adventure.New York has always been something of a stage - a showcase for debuts and second acts. And so it is fitting that in the vast space that once housed The New York Times printing presses, Discovery Times Square now offers headlines of a different, but equally compelling sort.From the icy waters of the Titanic's final resting place to genius mind of Da Vinci and the riches of King Tut, Discovery is proud to celebrate the world with the world class exhibits of the new Discovery Times Square.Discovery TS also features two exclusive retail experiences — The Discovery Store featuring the latest in games, dvds and other products from the #1 nonfiction company in the world, Discovery Channel, and The New York Times Store with a wide range of exclusive items perfect for the newspaper enthusiast or history buff.

We went here to see the Bodies exhibit and found out there is also a Star Wars Costume exhibit! We were able to get a combo ticket to save some money. Both were amazing and you really have to experience them. Don't miss this place if you are in town. Very nice staff, clean, good location, educational, interesting. We went... More

Entry with New York Pass tickets was good value but I would have been disappointed if we had paid full price. Interesting and passed an hour or so, usual gift shop and cafe at end.

The Star Wars Costume exhibit was awesome! It was great to see the details of each costume, the thought that went behind creating them, and how each costume helped create the character and tell the story. My kids (ages 9 and 11) loved seeing the costumes, weapons (light sabers, guns, etc.) and particularly loved seeing the Chewbacca costume. There were... More

This is more than a museum - situated at Times Square - we could choose to visit 1 of 3 exhibits ( Vikings / Star Wars / Body World) We chose to view the Star Wars exhibit which was a winner for our family. Each exhibit took you on an epic journey of discovery of each of the Star Wars... More

I've been here twice, once with friends for their Hunger Games exhibit and this time with my kids and friends to see their Star Wars exhibit. Both were awesome. The Star Wars exhibit my kids loved. They had costumes from all of the Star Wars movies, even from The Force Awakens. My daughter loves Rey and the Princesses costumes and... More

I'm a big star wars fan so I was looking forward to this . I think I may have been expecting too much. I thought it a little bit expensive. Quite a lot of costumes but could have had a bit more information on them. If your a fan please go . Be quick it's only on until 5th September.

We saw a poster when we first got to NYC advertising this, and since this appears to be a limited time thing, we decided to re-arrange our schedule to forgo one of the permanent attractions (Sorry NBC studio tour). The attraction was really neat and gave lots of interesting tidbits about the costumes and movies. I'm sure a true Star... More

My husband is a huge star wars fan and we saw this and felt it was a must see. We spent $65 for two tickets, which is a total over charge. Half of that price and i would have felt better about the experience. You just walk around and look at costumes, that's about it. Plus you can't take photos... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
